progress in meeting the requirements for accredi- 
tation by the Southern Association of Colleges 
and Secondary Scliools. Tlie College received 
candidate status in 196-1. 

The excellence of its academic standards was 
recognized by the Association of American Col- 
leges in January, 1965, ivhen it elected the College 
to associate membership— the first ti?ne in history 
a nonaccredited college Jias been so honored. 

Florida Presbyterian College is independent 
and church related. Its enrollment is open to 
qualified men and women of all faiths— and more

The Challenge of 

Higher Education 

To The Youth of Today 




The selection of a college is a most important 
decision lor there are many kinds — Jimior col- 
leges, technical colleges, state colleges, private 
colleges. Through this catalog we present the 
aims and program of Florida Presbyterian 
College, a private four-year Liberal Arts College 
offering intellectual challenge to the youth who 
are to become the leaders and decision makers 
in tomorrow's world. We invite young people, 
their parents and counselors to consider careftdly 
the program as illustrated herein and to be 
assured that any qualified student will be 
welcomed into the college community. 

At Florida Presbyterian College the student 
is motivated through a challenging curriculum 



and the guidance of dedicated and concerned 
faculty to seek his highest potential as an indi- 
vidual; confronted with the challenge to stretch 
his mind in the search for knowledge; encouraged 
to become a creative, concerned and courageous 
person capable of assuming the responsibilities 
of the rapidly changing and dynamic world in 
which we live. 

Florida Presbyterian College has a program 
designed to inspire and stimtdate every student 
and to present him with the opportunity for 
personal achievement in a cultural, spiritual and 
intellectual climate.

Outstanding Students 



Floriila Presbyterian College actively seeks 
outstaiuling students. Trusting that our leaders 
tomorrow are the better students of today, 
Florida Presbyterian College trains them to be 
good leaders and to seek and to assume leader- 
ship. Certain kinds of curriculum and methods 
ol teaching are possible and appropriate only 
with outstanding students. While Florida 
Presbyterian College has few rigid entrance 
requirements, it expects of her prospective 
students considerable attainment in academic 
sid)jects. In addition to scholarly achievement, 
students should display unusual breadth of inter- 
est and excellence of character conducive to the 
orderly transition from secondary school to 
college. \'oung men and women must be eager 
to learn to grow physically, intellectually, and 
spiritually. Above all, they must be ready to 
accept much of the responsibility for their own 
learning. 




Living Research 



Florida Presbyterian College exists to prove 
to the world that the minimum or average need 
not be the norm in ediuation (or thinking) and 
to test the proposition that education can be 
both liberal and Christian. It adopts experi- 
mental attitudes in attempting to reach its goals 
through unique but carefully considered means. 

We are engaged in living research in higher 

education, not merely in developing something 
we already have. The general direction of our 
research is to discover how students can most 
skillfully learn to make evaluations. Description 
and analysis are not sufficient, we believe, for 
moral education. They cannot be dispensed 
with; they are necessary in the search for truth. 
But the search for truth cannot stop with them. 
Truth requires judgment and choice based upon 



moral presuppositions. The formulations of 
standards of judgment as a conscious intellectual 
activity and the habitual judgment of such 
standards are an indispensable part of education. 
We do not presume that Florida Presbyterian 
College is the first college to assume the necessity 
of a moral end of education, but we are experi- 
mental in trying to find out how best such an 
end can be realized. 



Motivation 



Florida Presbyterian College thus has a deep 
concern for its students. It seeks to stimulate 
growth — the student's realization of individual 
potential — and encourages individual attain- 
ment. With the fundamental aim of the College 
community to make students aware of the serious- 
ness of their vocation, students, throughout their 
undergraduate careers, exercise their powers of 
decision on the basis of informed and thoughtful 
judgment consciously pursued. 



a ^ 





A Christian Comniiinity 



In still another way we are probably more 
experimental than in any other: we are trying 
to find out what a Christian College is! Those 
who have studied the idea longest and hardest 
agree that- people in general have no clear-cut 
idea of what a Christian college is or should be 
and that disagreement is to be expected. Still 
we are all united in believing that there should 
be a college in which the presuppositions are 
avowedly Christian. 

Truth, freedom and Christianity have inevit- 
able connections whether in the search, the 
heritage or the government of a Christian college. 
And we have a vision of a Christian community 
which is not monastic in separating dedicated 
persons from the world but which prepares 
dedicated people to go back into the world and 
witness through the exercise of their intellect. 



This witness, we pray, will prove to the world 
that a Christian education best fits people for 
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for 
others. 

A private, coeducational, liberal arts college, 
founded and maintained by the Presbyterian 
Churches, both U.S. and U. P. U.S. A. acting co- 
operatively, Florida Presbyterian College 
acknowledges as primary in the search for truth 
a knowledge of God and of ourselves as revealed 
in fesus Christ. The College examines and 
nurtures beliefs and recognizes faith as a probing 
and vitalizing force. 

Dedicated to the inspiration of a strong sense 
of Christian obligation for involvement and 
leadership in local and global events, the College 
is equally dedicated to the proposition that its 
doors are open to qualified students of all faiths. 




Prospective students, regardless of major field 
of study and plans beyond the undergraduate 
years, will find in Florida Presbyterian College 
educational experiences basic to lasting satisfac- 
tion, personal integration and social usefulness. 
The program of liberal arts, complete in itself, 
is eminently practical, regardless of a student's 
intended vocation or avocation. In addition, 
the College provides specific pre-professional 
training for the ministry, medicine, law, 
education, business and graduate work in 
specialized fields. 

In short, Florida Presbyterian College aims 
to provide life-long attitudes of always seeking 
deeper, fuller comprehension, of always seeking 
the whole view, and of always following courses 
of action to extend capabilities and responsibili- 
ties for personal and community betterment. 



Learning is Personal 



Florida Presbyterian College is a unified 
academic community in which each member's 
recognition and security depend on his freedom 
to pursue scholarship and to associate with others. 
Here learning is personal and widely xaried 
because of the realization that knowledge comes 
from others of differing as well as similar back- 
grounds and pursuits. We employ both conven- 
tional and unconventional methods in the search 
for truth to provide insights and skills which 
train and excite cjur students' intellects and 
emotions for creative and imaginative expression. 

In guiding our students' development, we 
afford them innumerable opportunities to learn 
emotional independence, the necessity for indi- 
vidual questioning, and the right and duty of 
personal judgment. Thus, Florida Presbyterian 
College cherishes freedom of thought. For its 
entire academic community — students, faculty, 
staff — the College insists upon respect for human 
dignity and individual uioral responsibility sup- 
ported by the Ijelief that humanity was created 
for one great co-oj^eration. Thus the College 
confronts students with the conflicts of cultures, 
affording them an (Opportunity to intensify their 
own search for meaningful and applicaijle values. 
Students learn to arrive at new and broader un- 
derstandings of themselves and their studies in 
relation to culture, creation and the ultimate.

A Fresh Start 



Founded in the tradition of the great American 
liberal arts schools, Florida Presbyterian College 
has been singularly blessed ironi its beginning. 
The founders, trustees, staff and faculty have 
together pursued a policy of experimentation. 
This policy has been not to cast out what has 
proved successful in education of the highest 
quality, but rather with a fresh start to develop 
and adopt new approaches, programs, facilities 
and procedures. Already the curriculum and the 
permanent campus, planned by architects and 
educators, have captured widesjjread attention 
and enthusiasm among those concerned with 
meeting the vastly increasing demands for higher 
education in the United States fcjr superior 
students. 

To carry out a college program of the first 
order efficiently and at a mininunn cost, students 
themselves undertake independent learning 
during their four years. The program generates 



independence of thinking and study to produce 
fuller understanding, to inspire personal initia- 
tive and to develop acceptance of responsibility. 
The entire program emphasizes independent 
study, under faculty guidance and review, and 
elicits and maintains individual responsibility 
through specific means. 



Core Courses 

To promote a community of learners and to 
demonstrate the interrelateclness of knowledge, 
Florida Presbyterian College asks every student 
lo take at least one course which all students in 
his year are taking. These are the Core courses 
taught co-operatively by professors of art, biology, 
economics, history, physics, political science, psy- 
chology, religion and sociolcjgy. In these, students 
pursue with the group and on their own a critical 
understanding of the major attempts of man to 
interpret his purpose and to organize his experi- 
ence through the analytic and historic study of 
works and institutions. 



Independent Study 

Proficiency rather than fulfilhiient of course 
requirements is the measure of accomplishment 
anci admission to advanced studies. Thus per- 
formance (e.g., on placement tests) rather than 
credit previously earned admits students to ad- 
vanced work in the Core courses, languages, 
sciences and mathematics and determines 
progress toward a degree. In many areas, students 
can work independentry, preparing themselves 
for advanced standfng, doing research and writ- 
ing papers, and receive recognition for their 
work without attending lectures and classes. 
Hence a student may accelerate his education 
during the school year and the summer months 
at home according to his capabilities and secure 
the full recognition for work done independently 
which normally is certified by course credits. 



Studies Abroad 

To increase in our students opportunities for 
self-directed study and a sense of world com- 
munity, Florida Presbyterian College arranges 
studies abroad during the Winter Term, the 
summer and the junior year. Students travel in 
groups and singly with projects for study planned 
in advance. The College co-operates with other 
schools here and abroad, tests the language pro- 
ficiency of students for the project undertaken, 
evaluates their accomplishments upon their 
return to the campus and awards equivalent 
credit. As a member of the Associated Mid- 
Florida Colleges, Florida Presbyterian encourages 
its students to participate in a Junior Year 
Abroad Program in France, Germany and Spain. 



Size of Classes 



Florida Presbyterian College has few middle- 
sized classes. They are either large enough to 
encourage indq^endent work and the exchange 
of ideas within the whole community or small 
enough to permit discussions in which learners 
(that is, both teacher and students) explore, 
debate and form conclusions together. Both 
large and small groups place increasing responsi- 
bility on the student and give him two different 
kinds of experience in learning. The large course 
contributes to the idea of community by assem- 
bling all students of a given year for lectures, 
panels, demonstrations, movies and concerts and 
by providing small groups where students test 
their personal reactions against those of their 
fellows in a free forum. The ratio of faculty to 
students is approximately 1:14. 









10 




Winter Term 



The Winter Term is a special four-week 
period of independent study for all undergrad- 
uates. It comes between the fall semester, which 
begins early in September, and the spring semes- 
ter, which begins early in February. With 
examinations for the fall semester over before 
the Christmas holidays, January is free for in- 
tensive study. 

Designed to develop the qualities of self- 
discipline in pursuits requiring the student to 
be the prime explorer, the Winter Term asks 
him to work without the customary routine of 
classroom and lectine hall on a single problem 
growing out of his other studies and to present 
his findings in final form. With guidance he 
chooses and limits his subject, gathers material, 
organizes it and presents it as a paper, a short 
story, a painting, a piece of laboratory apparatus. 

During this special semester, each professor 
directs the activities of about fifteen students. 
A student selects a professor to work under; 
sometimes the group works co-operatively on 
topics or problems announced in advance, and 
sometimes they work separately. Throughout the 
four weeks, the professor is available for con- 
sultation and guidance. 

This intensive, independent study supple- 
ments the extensive work of the courses and thus 
affords unusual opportunity for the student 
during each of his four years to engage in 
extended, creative work not normally afforded in 
traditional undergraduate curriculums. Through 
the Winter Term at Florida Presbyterian College, 
the student not only works on his own to master 
a limited subject but may have the benefit of 
step-by-step evaluation of his work. 

Some of these projects are conducted in 
foreign countries. 




A 




Senior 
Seminar 



During his senior year, every student takes 
a seminar in his major field. Upon recommenda- 
tion of their major professors, seniors may elect 
to pursue an independent program of study and 
research in addition to or in lieu of the senior 
seminar. They present the results of their work 
in thesis. Ordinarily, thesis research begins in 
the first semester of the senior year and extends 
throughout the second semester. 



late Laboratory 

Some of the most unusual research being 
conducted anywhere in the world is being carried 
out in the primate laboratory of Florida Presby- 
terian College. 

There 28 rhesus monkeys are being tested 
under the direction of Dr. Wilhelm F. Anger- 
meier, associate professor of psychology, in a 
project sponsored by the Office of Aerospace 
Research, Washington, D. C. 

The mental reactions of monkeys and of 
human subjects to situational stimuli are being 
collected and analyzed through these laboratory 
experiments to determine adaptability to known 
and unknown environments.

The Language Laboratory 



A primary objective of studying a modern 
foreign language is learning to speak and under- 
stand it. The language laboratory facilitates 
this aspect of learning through aural-oral practice 
that the conventional classroom does not provide. 
The laboratory at Florida Presbyterian College 
is of the newest design. It operates thirty-five 
positions by remote control so that the student 
can work independently or as a member of a 
class. By merely dialing an appropriate number, 
the student can hear an instructional tape, record 
his own responses, and play it back for com- 
parison and corrections. As many as a hundred 
different tapes are available to the student at 
anv time. Languages offered are Chinese, French, 
German, Russian, Spanish, Latin and Greek. 



The Writing Laboratory 



Since academic success depends in great 
measure upon the written word, Florida Pres- 
byterian College emphasizes a high degree of 
proficiency in writing, both in the selection of 
its students and in determining their progress. 
The College looks for students who do not re- 
quire training in writing in a formal course of 
composition. It makes heavy demands upon 
them in their writing. Students learn to expect 
criticism from all their professors on their written 
work and help in planning papers and achieving 
effective style. In addition some staff members 
are available to help students overcome indi- 
vidual weaknesses. The writing laboratory 
enables students to form efficient procedures by 
providing a workshop for writing with a faculty 
consultant and appropriate reference books.

The Reading Laboratory 



The College Reading Laboratory is well 
equipped, containing rate pacers, tachistoscopes, 
a controlled reader and a library ot reading 
texts. This laboratory provides both group work 
and attention to inclividual needs. With some 
suggestions and guidance from the instructor, 
the student works as independently as possible. 
A proficiency test is administered to all freshmen 
and transfer students. On the basis of this and 
other tests they learn whether they should work 
on special reading skills, or whether, though their 
reading is above average, they can profit by 
increasing their rate. Throughout their four 
years students can receive help in achieving 
efficient reading rates necessary to enable them 
to master the heavy reading assignments of our 
program. 



.\S<y 



The Science Laboratories 

A student in the natural sciences has oppor- 
tunity to undertake laboratory practice and 
research. Manual exercises and routine experi- 
ments (which are not experiments at all but 
repetitions) are minimized. Emphasis is rather 
on the student's acquiring the ability to under- 
stand theory and experimentation, exploring the 
appropriateness of methods and evaluating 
design and techniques. The small laboratory 
becomes the place for group discussion and 
provides occasion for exchange of ideas and pro- 
cedures among students. 

Natural and man-made laboratories combine 
to provide varied off-campus scientific study in 
the College's immediate area. The climate allows 
year-round field work in natural laboratories 
such as lakes, bays and land-area communities, 
and students can apply their knowledge of chem- 
istry, physics, and biology to aquatic environ- 
ments under a continuing research program. 
There is also a high concentration of excellently 
staffed laboratories concerned with electronics, 
nuclear physics and chemistry in many private 
and governmental research facilities in the area.

William Luther Cobb Library 



Because the liberal arts college must be a 
reading college, the library is the center of the 
academic program. With our emphasis upon 
independent work, the library, gilt ol Mr. and 
Mrs. William Luther Cobb oi Tarpon Springs 
Florida, is the primary instrimient in the educa- 
tional process, the storehouse ol the intormation, 
opinions and techniques necessary to a liberal 
education. Through open shelves and collections 
maintained in each dormitory, students have 
easy access to many books. The library not only 
supplies materials tor reference, required reading 
and research papers but also compiles bibliogra- 
phies, prepares exhibits and promotes interest 
in reading. 

The initial ten-year goal of the William 
Luther Cobb Library is 100,000 volumes. At 
present there are 53,000 catalogued volumes on 
the shelves. 



The Studios 



The practice of art and of music flourishes 
in the studios of Florida Presbyterian College. 
Here students may receive professional guidance 
individually or in groups of various sizes, or 
they may pmsue independently the mastery of 
techniques. In the art studio a student works 
in many media. In the music studio he may 
study voice or the instrument of his choice. As 
a result of their studio work, students periodically 
offer exhibits of their paintings, prints and 
sculptures and present recitals to the College 
commimity and friends. In its emphasis iqion 
the activities of the studios, the College encour- 
ages its students personal involvement with the 
materials of the creative and performing arts. 





The Campus . . 




. and Campus Life 



Florida Presbyterian College provides a resi- 
dential student lite. Most ot its undergraduates 
live on the breeze-swept, bay front campus in 
its air conditioned buildings. 

The young men and women in residence 
learn Irom their friends and associates as well 
as their professors. They acquire understanding, 
leadership and tolerance and they practice free, 
democratic choice of action. The non-resident 
students participate in all campus functions. 

They are part of a liberal arts, academic 
commimity which occupies 46 buildings on 285 
acres studded with palm, pine and live oak trees 
on the east shore of Boca Ciega Bay, just off 
the Gulf of Mexico. Just a mile to the south is 
the entrance to the famous Sunshine Skyway 
crossing the mouth of Tampa Bay. 

The grounds and buildings were valued at 
$10,500,000 in 1965 with more buildings sched- 
uled for completion in 1966. Expenditures total- 
ing 525,000,000 by the end of the next decade 
are charted. 

Present buildings include six dormitory com- 
plexes capable of housing 685 students and three 
resident counselors. 

The community center of the campus is the 
College Union; it serves all members of the Col- 
lege family— students, faculty, alumni and guests. 
It includes a ballroom, bowling lanes, a snack 
bar, a billiard room and offices for the student 
publications. More than a group of buildings, 
the College Union is an organization and a pro- 
gram. It is the hub around which revolves the 
social life of the campus. All students auto- 
matically receive membership in the College 
Union. 

The intellectual hub of the College is the 
William Luther Cobb Library, gift of Mr. and 
Mrs. Cobb oi Tarpon Springs, Fla. It already 
contains 53,000 of the 100,00o\'olumes for which 
it is designed. 

The Dendy-McNair Teaching Auditorium 
and the F. Page Seibert Humanities Building 
are units of the Humanities Complex. The 
former, donated by First Presbyterian Church 
of Orlando, is named for two former ministers 
of that church; the latter was named for the 
Daytona Beach philanthropist. The Forrer 
Language Center, including one of the most 



modern teaching laboratories in the world, is 
the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel F. Forrer of 
Lakeland. 

The Helen and Cecil Webb Health Center, 
a gift of Mr. and Mrs. Webb of Tampa, pro- 
vides office and equipment for medical care for 
College commimity. The administration build- 
ing is named for its donors, Mr. and Mrs. Wil- 
liam W. Upham of St. Petersburg Beach. 

The Science Complex has three wings— a 
teaching auditorium, a biology laboratory build- 
ing and a chemistry and physics laboratory 
building. 

Athletic facilities include an AAU swimming 
pool, baseball diamond, tennis courts and prac- 
tice golf links. All students are encouraged to 
use these facilities.

The Ciirriculiini 



The College accepts and endorses the policy 
general in American education that a liberal 
arts program includes studies in the three 
principal divisions. Yet it does not accept the 
standard procedure ot prescribing a certain num- 
ber ot courses in other than the major depart- 
ments because it tends to an accumulation ot 
courses not in any deep sense relevant to the 
intelligent development of the particular student 
or to his major course ot study. Accordingly, it 
has established a policy of making the course of 
study unified for individual development and 
interests. The College does not specify attention 
to other fields as a given number of courses but 
rather as a plan involving a student's unique 
experiences of programmed special readings con- 
nected with his main interest, of independent 
study, or of other devices. The principle opera- 
tive in each case is that the plan of study be 
coherent and orderly and not defined as formal 
course credits. 



In the formulation of the curriculum at 
Florida Presbyterian College consideration is 
given to major problems and developments in 
higher education. Specifically, these are (1) in- 
terdisciplinary study, (2) pre-professional study, 
(3) independent study, (4) qualitative assess- 
ment, (5) the role of basic values in curriculum 
definition and (6) separation within the academic 
community. These are elaborated in a basic 
curriculum, the minimum required program of 
the College. Students working with their advisers 
build on this basic curriculum adding to it and 
adapting it to their abilities and needs. The 
inter-disciplinary Core course provides a four- 
year liberalizing experience which makes learn- 
ing an involvement and enduring experience. 



The Winter Term exposes every student to 
independent study affording opportunity for 
individual pursuits. In addition mdividual jjro- 
ficiencies give students scope and clioice in: 

a. Courses in the Major. The several fields 
of major study stipulate various require- 
ments (see Courses of Instruction pp. 42). 
It should be noted that students may begin 
work in their major field as freshmen. 

Majors are offered in: 

Humanities— Art, Languages, Literature, 
Music, Philosophy, Religion; 

History and the Social Sciences— Econom- 
ics and Business Administration, His- 
tory, Political Science, Psychology, Soci- 
ology and Anthropology; 

Mathematics and the natural Sciences- 
Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, 
Physics. 

Students may pursue a divisional or inter- 
divisional major consisting of ten or more courses 
of which six will represent concentration in one 
discipline with the additional courses related to 
this major. 

b. Language. Students must demonstrate 
competence in speaking, reading and writ- 
ing a foreign language and be familiar 
with the culture of a country to which 
the language is native. Competence some- 
times is achieved through two college years 
of study following two years of high school 
study in the same language. 

c. Mathematics and logic. Students take 
whatever mathematics they are ready for, 
or logic, in either the freshman or sopho- 
more year. 



19 



Other Courses. The curriculum also pro- 
vides specific preparation courses for 
graduate work in specialized fields, in- 
cluding law, medicine and the ministry. 
It also offers a program leading to certi- 
fication to teach at the secondary level in 
most areas in which the College offers 
a major. The student interest in certifica- 
tion should apply to the Teacher Educa- 
tion Advisory Committee no later than 
the first semester of the Junior year. The 
internship is done in the local Pinellas 
Countv schools.

Degrees 



In the basic cmriculum of 36 courses and 4

Grades and Their Meaning 



The evaluation of academic progress at 
Florida Presbyterian College rests on a student's 
response to educational opportunity rather than 
on the fullillinent ot an arbitrary set ol course 
requirements. Our standards emphasize quality 
rather than quantity, and our rewards and 
awards are for outstanding and creative work. 
To emphasize the greater importance of intel- 
lectual achievement than of grades, Florida 
Presbyterian College uses grades only for ad- 
visory purposes and for the transfer of credit 
to other institutions. In advising students, we 
use the grades of H (honors), S (satisfactory) 
and U (unsatisfactory). 




Honor System 



Student government is an important part of 
campus life at the College. Collective action by 
imdergraduales in self-government is vital to 
the CJollege jjrogram. Basic thereto is the Honor 
System, enforced by the students themselves. All 
student activity, academic and social, presup- 
poses it. Predicated on Christian values, in its 
practice it contributes to the development of 
emerging, mature human beings. The College 
encourages a full, satisfying and meaningful 
campus life involving all students. Students 
organize and conduct social functions, publica- 
tions, intra m u r a 1 sports, organizations and 
special events like concerts.

lounselmg'^^^ 



The development of concerned and effective 
individuals is reflected in tfie counseling pro- 
gram. Here the emphasis is on the individual 
student, with his needs, limitations, abilities and 
goals. Through the admissions process, much in- 
formation is obtained on the student. Added to 
it are additional test results and other material 
gained during the orientation program. The 
Counseling Center director selects the most ap- 
propriate faculty adviser, on the basis of this 
information, for each student. During the orien- 
tation program the adviser meets with the stu- 
dent and plans his course schedule. Dining the 
year he holds additional conferences to discuss 
matters important to college adjustment and suc- 
cess. Faculty advisers form an integral part of 
the counseling program and through his adviser 
each student lias access to every special program 
and assistance likely to make college life mean- 
ingful and enjoyable. 

Each incoming student also has a freshman 
advisory council member (FAC) assigned to him.

^\JV 



This person aids in the students' social and cam- 
pus adjustment— giving advice and counsel from 
one student to another. 

Professional resident counselors live within 
the women resident complexes and are avail- 
able to help with various problems. Carefully 
selected upperclass male students serve as resi- 
dent advisers in the men's resident complexes. 

A counseling center is available to offer con- 
fidential professional help to students having 
vocational or personal problems. Special group 
sessions are also held on improving study tech- 
niques, major and career planning, and prob- 
lems of transition from high school to college. 

A Placement Office assists students in obtain- 
ing permanent positions after graduation. It ar- 
ranges visits for representatives of companies 
and agencies seeking personal interviews with 
our students. In addition, the Placement Office 
undertakes special activities to assist those grad- 
uates who seek opportunities in teaching. 



Religious Life 



The student religious organizations ot Florida 
Presbyterian College are ecumenical in nature, 
organized around denominational groups which 
constitute the Student Christian Association 
(SCA). The SCA seeks to locus the Christian 
laith in the academic community. To this end, 
the SCA constantly strives to accomplish the 
following: 

a persistent, prayerltd search for the mean- 
ing of the Christian faith; 
a conscious effort to discern God's pur- 
pose for each person as it relates to his 
vocation; 

a fellowship of the academic community 
joined in common worship and the search 
for truth; 

a conscious concern for the life and mis- 
sion of the Ecumenical Church and en- 
couragement of responsible participation 
by its members. 
The basis of the program is worship. Because 
the College stands within the Protestant tradi- 



tion, all aspects of the religious program are 
\ oluntary. The chaplain, individual faculty mem- 
Ijcrs, students and the choir, all participate in 
daily worship services conducted for the entire 
college community. 

Through the planning and conducting of 
services, students and faculty have the oppor- 
tunity for a better understanding of the mean- 
ing of worship. During the week, the SCA spon- 
sors small study groups. Faculty members often 
(onduct general discussions in the dormitories. 
The SCA program deals with campus, com- 
nuuiity, national and international problems 
from the standpoint of Christian faith. Stu- 
dents also have an opportunity to take part in 
regional and national conferences and eciuiieni- 
cal work camps. 

The program of Florida Presbyterian College 
seeks to guide the student toward an intelligent 
and responsible Christian commitment in all 
areas of life.

Medical Services 



Students have medical attention and services 
throughout the academic year. A registered nurse 
is on hand and a physician available at all times 
on a consulting basis. Those cases that cannot 
be treated in the college's own well-equipped 
infirmary will be referred to either of two excel- 
lent hospitals in the City of St. Petersburg.

Summer School 



Florida Presbyterian College offers a six- 
week's summer program which ordinarily in- 
cludes courses in Art, Mathematics, Science, 
Government, Reading and Composition, West- 
ern Civilization, French, German, Russian 
and Spanish. 

The summer language program provides an 
opportunity for intensive work in understand- 
ing, speaking, reading and writing. Native in- 
formants, language tables and intensive practice 
in conversation are features of this program. 

The Summer School period is also used for 
experimentation in course materials and teach- 
ing techniques. Opporttuiity is available in many 
disciplines for advanced inclependent work. Sum- 
mer School is open to all qualified imdergrad- 
uates, and many courses are open to capable 
high school juniors and seniors. 

The complete recreational facilities of the 
college are available to Summer School students. 



Sports For All 



In addition to the required physical educa- 
tion for freshmen and sophomores, an integral 
part of the curriculum, the College sponsors an 
extensive program in 17 different team and in- 
dividual sports for both men and women. Nearly 
90 per cent of the student body takes part in 
this program. 

Intercollegiate athletics are entirely under 
the control of the College and organized and 
administered by the Athletic Department. The 
Faculty Athletic Committee supervises all sched- 
ules. It also gives attention to the proper rela- 
tion of athletic activities to the academic ideals 
and objectives of the College. 



The Intercollegiate Athletic Program pro- 
vides valuable experience to those students who 
possess superior physical skills and desire- to rep- 
resent the institiuion in formal competition. The 
sports included in the program are basketball, 
golf, tennis, judo, fencing, baseball, swimming, 
cross coimtry, sailing and track. 

Schedules are arranged with most of the 
Florida colleges and other senior colleges 
throughout the South. The annual Suncoast 
Classic Basketball Tournament, the Awards Din- 
ner and the Spring Sports Day are some of the 
highlights of the Sports Program. 




The Concert Choir, made up of some 40 
students, and its popular-song singing subsidiary. 
The Sandpipers, are establishing an ever-grow- 
ing reputation. They have sung throughout 
Florida and now are extending their tours up 
the Atlantic seaboard. Periodically, College in- 
strimientalists and singers and visiting artists 
give recitals ot chamber music and solos on 
campus. 

The College sponsors an annual series of 
public concerts. The 1965-66 program included 
Carlos Montoa, Lili Chookasian, the Amadeus 
Quartet of London, New York Pro Musica, 
the Krakow Choir and Orchestra, and the Monte 
Carlo National Orchestra. Students are given 
tickets to each performance. 

In the city, two symphony orchestras, an opera 
group, a woodwind quintet, two concert series 
and a string quartet offer numerous programs. 



Publications 



The Trident is the student newspaper pub 
fished weekly. Incite is a literary magazine ap-. 
pearing once or twice a semester. Students also 
publish the annual FPC Handbook, the pub- 
lication designed for new sttidents at the College. 
A College yearbook is published annually by a 
student staff. 



Societies 



The Social Science Forum, open to students 
majoring or especially interested in Economics, 
History, Political Science, Psychology and Soci- 
ology or Anthropology, seeks to stimulate student 
interest in graduate work and professional 
opportunities, in part through discussions of 
controversial and interdisciplinary materials. 

Foreign Language clubs promote understand- 
ing and appreciation of the language, literature 
and culture of the countries involved. Two 
honorary language societies— Delta Phi Alpha 
(German) and Epsilon Pi Iota (Spanish)— have 
chapters on the campus. 

Science clubs include the Chemistry Club, 
the Biology Club, the Physics Club and Pi Mu 
Epsilon (honorary mathematics). 

26 




Lectures 

The Core curriculum, the academic societies, 
forums and ckibs ot the College bring guest 
speakers throughout the year. Certain of these 
lectures are designed to meet the need of specific 
groups; others are open to the general public. 
A Faculty Lecture Series is presented each year. 



Theatre 

The theatre program at Florida Presbyterian 
College is centered in a Theatre Workshop in 
which all students are invited to participate. 
Performances are scheduled throughout the year: 
major production presented with full staging 
and under professional discipline; informal ex- 
periments, readings and exercises coordinated 
with the Core program and other projects. Em- 
phasis is placed upon the contemporary develop- 
ment of the theatre and upon its engagement 
with active intellectual, political, social and re- 
ligious issues. Theatrical production is related 
to the regular academic work in drama, in 
theatre history and aesthetics, and in theatrical 
production. 



Films 

About once a month the College runs a movie 
chosen for any reason that makes it excellent: 
its plot, its photography, its direction, its acting, 
its technical innovations, its humor, its topical 
interest. Films in this series are supplemented 
by pictures shown by College departments, di- 
visions, the Core program, and the Student Ac- 
tivities Committee. 




Freshiiiaii Acliiiissioii 



In admitting students, this College considers 
past academic performance in mathematics, 
science, literature, language and social studies; 
achievement on examinations; and personal 
qualifications such as character, special talents, 
range of interest, poise, maturity and personal 



development. It emphasizes the student's ability 
to profit from and contribute to, the learning 
community. Anyone deemed undesirable because 
of his conduct and character may be refused 
admission (or, as a student, may be requested to 
withdraw from the College at any time). 



This Is The Admissions 
Procedure: 

a. Early in his senior year in high school, 
a candidate should write to the Director of Ad- 
missions, Florida Presbyterian College, for an 
application form and a transcript form. A formal 
application for admission, along with an ap- 
plication fee of SIO, should be completed and 
retiuned to the Director of Admissions. (The 
fee is not refundable.) The applicant should re- 
quest the principal of the high school from 
which he is to be graduated to s^nd a transcript 
of his record to the Director of Admissions of 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

b. Applicants must arrange to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test offered by the College 
Entrance Examination Board. The results of 
the tests shotdd be submitted to the Director 
of Admissions of the College. It is recommended 
that the applicant take his Scholastic Aptitude 
Test in December of his senior year. Scores from 
the January, March and May dates are accept- 
able; however, the results from the December 
testing are preferred. The Preliminary Scholas- 
tic Aptitude Test taken during the junior year 
is helpful. 

A visit to the College is highly recommended. 
Please telephone or write to the Admissions 
Office for an appointment. 

Florida Presbyterian College highly recom- 
mends, but does not require, that applicants 
take the following Achievement Tests: Inter- 
mediate or Advanced Mathematics and English, 
selected from twelve choices. Testing centers 
throughout the cotmtry give these at specified 
times. 

At least six weeks before the date of any of the 
tests, the candidate should apply directly to the

College Entrance Examination Board, Box 592, 
Princeton, New Jersey. The Board sends an in- 
formation booklet giving full details about test- 
ing centers and the tests available and will mail 
the test results directly to the colleges designated 
by the applicant. 

The applicant for admission to the Fresh- 
man class must have completed the graduation 
requirements and demonstrated academic com- 
petence in a high school or preparatory school 
accredited by a state or regional accrediting 
agency. Even though the academic record will 
not be judged primarily on specific units of 
work, certain courses are strongly recommended: 
four years of English, three years of mathe- 
matics, two years of language, one year of his- 
tory and one year (preferably two) of science. 

The Admissions Office will compile com- 
plete information on each applicant for ad- 
mission, including the original request for 
admission information, transcripts from the ap- 
plicant's high school or preparatory school, test 
scores, personal recommendations and any other 
pertinent data. This file forms the basis for 
selection of candidates by the Admission Com- 
mittee each year.

Advanced Placement Program 

Courses will be honored at Florida Presby- 
terian College on the basis ol scores on the Ad- 
vanced Placement Examinations administered by 
the College Entrance Examination Boartl. Scores 
of 3, 4 and 5 will automatically certify the stu- 
dent in the course covered by the examination. 
Scores of 2 will be referred to the staff of the 
appropriate discipline for recommendations con- 
cerning possible credit. No credit will be allowed 
for scores of 1. 



Transfer Admission 

A student at another college or university 
wishing to transfer to Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege must complete the requirements for admis- 
sion already listed and submit a transcript of 
his college record with a catalogue and a state- 
ment from the college of his academic standing 
and personal qualifications. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may submit 
these scores or arrange to retake this examina- 
tion. If the applicant has not taken the Scholas- 
tic Aptitude Test he must arrange to do so. All 
applicants must stibmit results of the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test to the Director of Admissions of 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

Transfer of credit from other institutions 
approved by the Regional .Accrediting Agency 
depends upon the correspondence of the courses 
to those offered at Florida Presbyterian College 



and the approval of the academic division con- 
cerned. Grades below C are not acceptable 
for transfer. 

Students transferring into Florida Presby- 
terian College at the Junior level are expected 
to transfer twenty courses and to take five courses 
each semester during the Junior and Senior years. 



Special Admission 

Some students academically too advanced for 
further high school study or more than 21 years 
old, may have the entrance requirements waived. 
The Admissions Committee considers such cases 
individually. 



Candidate's Reply 

All candidates (including financial aid ap- 
plicants) will deposit $50 with the Director of 
Admissions by May 1 if admitted jjrior to that 
date. Applicants admitted after May 1 will be 
expected to make this deposit within two weeks 
after acceptance. This money though not refund- 
able, is applied toward the student's tuition 
upon enrollment. 

The applicant will receive a form for a 
medical examination to be completed by a physi- 
cian within the three months preceding matric- 
ulation, and to reach the Director of Admissions 
by August 20. 

On or about June 15 each student who has 
been accepted and who has paid a .'>50 accept- 
ance fee will be mailed information in regard 
to the orientation period prior to registration. 




Costs 



A college education of high intellectual chal- 
lenge is of lasting value and, like most things of 
value, is costly. Only ignorance is more ex- 
pensive. Private, non-tax supported institutions 
such as Florida Presbyterian College make every 
effort to keep the cost of education down and, 
as a result, the student pays only a portion of 
the actual expenses of his education. The por- 
tions paid by the student are as follows: 



Annual Expenses 

Day Resident 

Student Student 

Comprehensive charges $1,338 $2,263 

These charges include cost of room and 
board, library, athletic activities, health program, 
laboratory operations, studio facilities, accident 
and health insurance and guidance program. A 
single air conditioned room costs $100 per year 
extra. Costs include sales taxes. The air condi- 
tioning will be in operation during the months 
of September, October, November, March, April 
and May. The College assumes no liability for 
utility breakdown over which it has no control. 
All students living on campus are required to 
deposit $5 for room breakage and $1 for key. 

An assessment of $20 has been voted by the 
students to underwrite student sponsored pro- 
grams, publications and similar sttident functions. 
This must be paid to the Student Government 
Association at the time of Fall enrollment. 

EXTRA FEES: All new students are charged an 
orientation fee of $12. Students with automobiles must 
pay a $20 annual parking fee. Music. Private in- 
struction in music is approximately |180 per year for 
one hour a week and $105 per year for one-half hour. 

All accounts are due and payable on term 
basis September 1 and January 15. Students may 
make financial arrangements permitting accounts 
to be paid on an installment plan approved by 
the Board of Trustees. All accounts must be 
paid by December 1 and May 1 before students 
will be permitted to take final examinations. In- 
formation on charges for the installment plan 
and more specific financial information may be 
obtained by writing the Director of Finance and 
Accounting. 

In order to meet changing economic condi- 
tions, the Board of Trustees reserves the right 
to revise charges as conditions may warrant. 



Financing Your Education 

Generally, half of the total cost, minus a $50 
acceptance fee and any room deposits, is due at 
entrance in September and the rest January 15. 
Matriculation is a contract binding the student 
(and his parents) for tuition, fees, room or board 
for the entire term. The college has many dif- 
ferent ways to finance your education.. The Di- 
rector of Admissions will send a list of scholar- 
ships and loans upon request. The College co- 
operates with insurance and ttiition-plan com- 
panies to make available to parents various pro- 
grams for financing educational expenses. 

The College has available a number of schol- 
arships. Awards of financial aid by the Scholar- 
ship Committee are based upon financial need, 
academic performance and potential. It is as- 
sumed that a financial aid program for a given 
individual will be made from Scholarship, Work 
Scholarship and Loan. A student who makes 
application for financial aid is automatically con- 
sidered for these various forms. 

Florida Presbyterian College has the policy 
that every qualified student shotild be helped 
to work out his financial problems. For further 
information concerning scholarships and loans 
please contact the Director of Admissions. 

Loans 

Students needing financial assistance ought 
to consider borrowing money for a college edu- 
cation. Student loans are good business: a college 
education considerably increases earning power, 
many loans require little or no deferred interest, 
and some need not be repaid in full. The college 
has endowed loan funds and participates in the 
National Defense Education Loan Program. 



!S Employment 



Many part-lime jobs are available: in dining 
rooms, offices, laboratories, library, bookstore, 
swimming pool. They pay $250-$300 a year for 
a 9- to 10-hour week. Although off-campus part- 
time work is also available, the day of full-time 
earning while learning is about over. It is recom- 
mended that freshmen not undertake part-time 
employment. Student instructors assist profes- 
sors in research and teaching responsibilities. 
These students are paid $250-$300 per year and 
they are selected because of their high level 
of achievement.

Heartbeat of a College 

In no other area was so much painstaking 
care and concern evidencetl at Florida Presln- 
terian College as in the selection of its facultv 
—the heartbeat of any such institution. Regard- 
less of status or tenure, every faculty member 
finally selected combines scholarship and leach- 
ing to an extraordinary degree. 

The criteria, for acceptance, as set forth l)v 
the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher with 
depth and command in his field of specializa- 
tion and a breadth of cidtural background en- 
abling him to relate his own discipline to the 



totality of e\]jerience; who demonstrates per- 
sonal and professional competence and growth 
thiough research, publication and professional 
participation; who inspires students with his 
resj)ect for his profession by his ai)ility, his char- 
acter and his conduct; who has the ability him- 
self to think creatively and objectively and to 
inspire his students to do likewise; who extends 
himself to his students in service, to his colleagues 
in co-operation and to his conmumity in con- 
cern; and finally, whose Christianity the students 
will want to enuilate.

Introduction 



The number oi each course conveys the following information: Courses 
niunbered 100 to 299 are primarily for freshmen and sophomores, 300 to 499 for 
juniors and seniors. In general, odd-numbered courses are offered in the first 
semester; even-numbered courses are offered in the second semester. 



Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their faculty 
advisers. Near the close of the school year each freshman is expected to prepare 
a tentative course program for the remaining three years of college and to present 
it to his adviser for critical evaluation and counsel. At the end of the second 
year of study each student must submit for approval to the Committee on 
Academic Review his projected program. A student may revise his program at 
any time thereafter with the approval of a major adviser. 



This catalogue lists the Core courses, which all students must take, and also 
the courses according to academic divisions and academic disciplines within 
each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture-discussion periods 
per week supplemented by other periods, studios, or laboratories. 



Course descriptions are not given for the Special Topics and Senior Seminars 
because a professor is free to vary his offerings each year according to student 
interest and his own study and research. Students receiving the endorsement 
of the professors in their major field may take the equivalent of two courses each 
semester during their junior and senior years in a program of guided independent 
study and research which should culminate in an acceptable thesis.

Core Courses 



The basic objective ot the Core Program is to develop in stiiclenls tlie com- 
petence and wilhngness to torm and articulate responsible value judgments. 
Materials of the courses are drawn from the areas of Humanities, Natural Science 
and Social Science; and professors from all academic divisions of the college 
participate in the program. Special concern is accorded to the relevance of the 
Judaeo-Christian tradition and of religious commitment in the formation ()f 
judgments. Comparative studies are made of works and institutions from Asian 
and Western traditions. 

The Core Program is the common academic experience of all students 
throughout their entire residence in the college. This program, together with 
demonstrated competence in a foreign language, in reading, in mathematics or 
logic and in recreational skills, is a general college requirement. 

The Core Science Course is an integrated course covering certain basic 
theories of physics, chemistry and biology, normally taken in the Sophomore 
and Junior years. It is concerned with the nature of science and its influence 
on western society as well as with the facts of science.

Six hours are set aside each week for critical examination of works and 
institutions selected from various fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences. 
Ordinarily two or three hours are used for lectures or other presentations to the 
entire class. For two additional sessions of an hour and a half each the students 
meet in small discussion groups for detailed examination of the docinnents under 
consideration. Discussion leaders supervise the writing program of the students 
assigned to them. 

Four and one-half hours are reserved each week for continuation of the work 
in Humanities and Social Science which was begun in the Freshman year. Three 
additional hours are used in presentations, laboratories and discussions of natural 
science materials. This year's program emphasizes the Newtonian synthesis, the 
structure of the atom and the nature of chemical change. 

The allocation of student time is the same as during the Soj^homore year. In 
the areas of the Humanities and Social Science special attention is focused on 
the works and institutions of Asia. In Core Science the emphasis is on the cell, 
biological ecosystenrs, physical and biological evolution and modern systems of 
scientific thought. 



43 



401, 402 CHRISTIAN FAITH AND GREAT ISSUES 

For this program 12 to 14 persons of national and international prominence

issues of personal and social ethics. The selection of topics and of speakers is

visiting lecturers.

The basic goal of the quality, liberal arts 
education offered at Florida Presbyterian College 
is to open new horizons to its students. Its 
emphasis is on growth and individual attainment. 
It endeavors, in every aspect, to encourage 
creative action and the power of decision on the 
basis of informed and thoughtful judgment, 
consciously pursued. The young men and women 
who attend this college must possess an eagerness 
to learn, a desire to grow physically, intellectually 
and spiritually, and have a willingness to accept 
much of the responsibility for their own learning. 



t • 




Florida Presbyterian College has a deep con- 
cern for its students and seeks in every way 
through its faculty and facilities to stimulate 
the realization of individual potential and to 
inculcate the seriousness of the student's voca- 
tion. In the guidance of student development, 
the college encourages its students, as subjects 
of the learning process, to be emotionally inde- 
pendent, to think for themselves, to exercise as 
citizens of a democratic society their right and 
duty of personal judgment. As individuals, the 
students are challenged to have the strength to 
stand in solitary responsibility lest they become 
molded into personalities without purpose or 
identity which reflect only the wishes of others 
and who change with every new prevailing cir- 
cumstance. It plans to confront them with the 
conflicts of culture and to arouse within them 
the feelings of anxiety that should intensify their 
search for meaningful and applicable values and 
aid them in evolving an understanding of them- 
selves and their studies in relation to culture, 
creation and the Ultimate. 



As a Christian institution of higher learning, 
Florida Presbyterian College acknowledges as its 
primary search "the knowledge of God and 
knowledge of ourselves as revealed in Jesus 
Christ." It purposes to nurture the beliefs and 
attitudes that are central to the Christian inter- 
pretation of man, to employ faith as a probing 



72 




and vitalizing force and not as a substitute lor 
mental lethargy, and to inspire a strong sense 
of Christian moral obligation for involvement 
and leadership in local and global events. 



Florida Presbyterian College maintains a 
unified academic community in which each mem- 
ber's recognition and security depends on the 
pursuit and attainment of scholarly interests 
and Christian relationships. Here learning is 
regarded as personal because of the realization 
that knowledge comes through others ... of 
differing as well as similar backgrounds and 
pursuits. All methods for the establishment of 
truth in every aspect of life are employed to 
provide insights and skill which train and excite 
the intellect and emotions for creative and 
imaginative expression. Freedom of thought is 
cherished, imfettered by arrogant assertions of 
opinion and pious devotion to blind tradition. 
It fosters a setting in which the respect for human 
dignity and the firmness in exercising moral re- 
sponsibility is supported by the belief that 
humanity was created by God for one great 
cooperation.
